In the section "Code Blocks":

  "Rather than forming normal paragraph," -- should be "paragraphs" or 
perhaps "a paragraph".  Later in the sentence, "what you went in a code 
block" should be either "what you want in a code block" or "what you 
put in a code block" or some such.

Oh, and +1 for documenting the [shortcut][] link format.

Excellent docs.  Thanks for a great piece of code, John.
